We are passionate about equipping a generation of leaders to revive the church and reach people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. ForMission equips Christian Leaders to transform their communities through accredited training, thought leadership and missional support. Our academic programmes are an important part of what we do however they only tell part of the story of who we are.
Springdale College started life in 1980 as a mission college in Selly Oak, Birmingham, where prominent missionary Lesslie Newbigin taught in his last years of active ministry. In March 2015, with a growing missional vision, Springdale College was renamed ForMission College. ForMission offers degree courses, which have been accredited by Newman University since 2018, for students from a wide range of denominations and networks.
